Patrick Wolf – Hard Times
Ah, fresh songage from Patrick Wolf! Very excited for the new album to “drop”, discovered him surprisingly recently in our Basement Required Listening series down in the Society. For now though, we just have “Hard Times” and a Vulture EP floating around. So how does “Hard Times” fair? I don’t know…. Starts off with a play on left & right earphone noises, then plods into a driving violin-enhanced melody, until we finally fall into a pretty nice chorus, but I can’t quite make up my mind on this one.
Often in life, you can sum up how you feel about things with 3 simple choices, you can either fuck, kill, or marry it. Basically, when this song starts out, I kinda wanna kill it, but then at the chorus I’m ready to give it some lovins, but come the finale, I’m all wanting to marry this bastard! Oh man, it starts over and I go through the same emotions again!
What to do? What to do? I know! Let’s have a poll….. Give it a listen or two or three, then make your voice be known!
